Mandatory Construction Site Signage

Mandatory construction site signage is essential for informing employees about actions that need to be performed to ensure a safe workplace. Our construction site signage covers a variety of purposes, such as restricting access with the Construction Site Keep Out Sign, keeping track of drivers and visitors with the Report to Site Office Sign, and Pedestrians This Way Sign to direct foot traffic away from site hazards. Much of our mandatory construction site signage is customisable and can have your company logo added for free. These Custom Mandatory Signs can be tailor-made to your site’s needs and display a message with one of a large number of industry-recognised safety icons. 

In addition, we also provide the option of Custom Covid-19 Secure Signs, which can feature a number of coronavirus, social distancing and handwashing-themed icons and your own text to remind employees and visitors about how they can cut down on Covid-19 transmissions. You can also do this with our standard hygiene safety signs inthe Did You Wash Them? Hygiene Sign, the Now Wash Your Hands Sign and Use Hand Sanitiser Sign, which can be displayed near hand wash stations to help reduce the spread of Covid-19 and other viruses.

What is mandatory construction site signage?

Mandatory construction site signage is used to inform workers and visitors about required actions that must be carried out to ensure the safety of the site. This is also true for pedestrians and motorists, where applicable. These signs incorporate a blue circle, with a white safety icon, and are often accompanied by a blue panel with white writing, offering more detail on the required action. They are often accompanied by a Warning construction sign, which uses a yellow/red triangle with a safety icon to depict a hazard. For example, the Warning Construction Site Keep Out sign informs pedestrians that they are nearing the entrance of a construction site and must stay out to stay safe. 


What are the different types of mandatory construction signs?

Mandatory construction site signage covers several areas of site safety, given the wide range of actions required to protect lives and property. While general mandatory signs can be used to ensure workers and pedestrians take positive actions towards ensuring safety, there are a number of mandatory signs that are specific to the current climate and seek to protect workers from Covid-19 transmission and injury from construction site hazards. These specific mandatory construction site signs are:

Mandatory PPE signs

Personal protective equipment (PPE) has taken on an almost-exclusive definition during the pandemic as face coverings and other means of reducing Covid-19 transmission. However, PPE is actually defined as ‘all equipment (including clothing affording protection against the weather) which is intended to be worn or held by a person at work and which protects him against one or more risks to his health or safety, and any addition or accessory designed to meet that objective’. This applies very heavily to construction, with hard hats, high-visibility jackets, eye and ear protection, and many more pieces of PPE needed by workers. Our range of mandatory PPE signage is designed to effectively communicate what PPE is required in various areas of your site. To learn more about current UK regulations surrounding this, discover our guide to PPE regulations.


Covid-19 mandatory signs

The current climate sparked the need for mandatory Covid-19 signs, which are used to remind workers and visitors of their responsibility to follow government guidance and reduce the spread of the virus. As safety experts, we’re constantly staying abridged of the latest guidance to ensure we have the most up to date construction site signage for your business. These include the Wash Your Hands sign and the Sanitise Your Hands On Entry sign, which should be placed near hand washing points and entrances respectively. 

While mandatory signs are essential for your business, there are several other types of construction signs you must be aware of. To learn more, read our guide to the different types of construction site signage.


Where should construction site signage be located?

The placement of mandatory construction signage varies greatly depending on the type of sign being used. However, there are some signs that should always be located in specific areas, such as the No Entry sign, which must be placed at the site entrance to instruct pedestrians not to enter the site. Mandatory signs which relate to a specific risk must be placed in the vicinity of the hazard it refers to. For example, the Safety Harness Must Be Worn sign would be used in an area of the site where the equipment is required, such as scaffolding or roofing work. 


Are mandatory construction site signs required by law?

Yes, mandatory construction signage is required under several pieces of UK legislation, including the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 (HSR) and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999). The HSR details the correct application, types and use of safety signs in construction, insisting that any risk or hazard must be highlighted by building site signs to protect employees and comply with standards. While the HSR explains what you need to do regarding construction site signage, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999) highlights the need for accountability and the importance of a ‘risk assessment’, which enables the site manager to identify risks and hazards before implementing measures to reduce the likelihood and impact of said risk, as well as providing adequate signage (according to the requirements of the HSR).
